Re: “Times They Are A Changin'

Height creates a domino effect in all neighborhoods, and increases property values dramatically. You start with one 4 -7 story building and pretty soon, because developers can make so much money off that model (vs an itsy bitsy one or 2 story vintage building) the whole neighborhood goes down. Developers are willing to pay high for parcels, and will want to accumulate enough parcels to not only build high, but to provide plenty of parking, which leads to consecutive tear-downs of single, or 2 story, buildings. In Phoenix, where I live, one need only look at what is happening in the Roosevelt Row district to see where one project of height ultimately leads; the street is now lined with a sheer wall of 5 -7 story loft and condo buildings (although that neighborhood has the underlying zoning of "highrise"). But whether you tear down existing buildings for a two story project, a 6 story project, or a 20 story project, you have still lost the small scale, pedestrian friendly, original infrastructure - often times historic or at the very least, vintage.
